howard here with your weather first on this chill hi friday morning. all in all a pretty nice day ahead. sunny 55 at noon. winds northwest at 10 look for a high around 60 and then this weekend, looks like it will be even warmer. details just ahead. live look from our sky 9 where you can see there are no issues to report here at route 234, we'll go to the sky 9 shot inbound 66 from manassas to centreville. just going to find that normal slow stuff through that stretch and then it's okay as you head for fairfax and the beltway and i'll have more details on traffic coming up once again in a few minutes. back to you. thank you monika. right now we're celebrating all shades of brown. sheri crawley is an
6:11am
entrepreneur, author and most importantly she's a mom. she launched the company pretty brown girl to teach her daughter to be proud of herself and embrace all the shades of brown. and we welcome sheri. thank you for being here with us, came in from michigan. >> thank you. >> pleasure to have you here. the company pretty brown girl, it's a great idea. but why did you a successful woman, a mom, a role model for your daughter, need to come up with this concept? what was happening in her life that made you think this was important and had to be done? >> yes, i have two daughters. ages 6 and 7. and my oldest daughter was starting kindergarten. she was the only african- american in her class. we immediately started to see her self-esteem start to dwindle and that was very concerning for me at a mother. i'd also taken my daughters to a very popular doll store. they had a whole wall and they didn't pick the pretty brown girl doll. it was a hologram of girls and all -- whole group of girls and all the decisions were the same. that goes back to the doll test when given the choice. >> people may not remember that
6:12am
but that also talked about that separate but equal was not good. >> it was triggered in 1942 and really showed that when given a choice girls of color were not choosing the pretty brown doll as the pretty one or the smart one. i said wow that would be a great name for a doll. we didn't know it was going to turn into an entire movement. we started with leila the first ever pretty brown girl doll. >> you have the dolls in all shades of brown because we come in all shades of brown. >> yes, she is the first ever pretty brown girl doll. yes, we are so excited because it's become like a vocabulary word. not only about the product but about the conversation. and the platform for the discussion to take place around skin tone and self-esteem. >> and again, you say it's not just a movement but it became a business for you and look at all of the things you have besides the beautiful dolls. backpacks, and t-shirts. the tutus, everything. how has business been and what's been the reaction? >> yes, the reaction has been
6:13am
overwhelming. we're so excited. we get calls from moms and dads all the time thanking us because this wasn't present in the marketplace. something so simple. but yet it wasn't just present. when i wrote the book we started to see response and now implemented a curriculum that actually provides a formal platform. we have a national day now where we celebrate that is february 23rd. and we're so excited that families all around the country are really gathering around and this discussion. >> which really important is what we just learned in the election is that america is becoming so much more diverse. >> absolutely. >> that diversity is being celebrated but how much does pop culture have to do with daughters still picking the other dolls sometimes rather than the pretty brown dolls? >> i think that as a society we still have a lot of work to do. we're still seeing images that don't reflect women of color in the media, in mag seens, as princesses and everything like that. so it's important that we really address that early. so that it doesn't stem into
6:14am
issues when they get older. >> sheri crawley has addressed thattish, the line is -- that issue. the line is called pretty brown girls, the book. all of these things come. howard? i'm outside on the weather terrace on this chilly morning and you're probably not familiar with lazytown. it's a great kids show that started in iceland. now in 49, 50 countries? >> this is sportacus. >> that's right. >> well, tell me what it is. >> sportac us is a super energetic guy who -- he's a little bit above average. he goes like this. jumps like that. and all kinds of stuff and hangs out with the kids of lazytown and plays games -- >> you inspire kids to be healthy and active and strong and energetic. >> absolutely. >> you're in town because the heart walk is tomorrow morning. >> the american heart association has its walk tomorrow and i'm going to make sure that everybody is energetic and ready to go and that everybody have has a good
6:15am
time. >> he's going to start us off with the exercises tomorrow morning. you say a couple this morning out here too? >> how about that? let's start with -- >> got me. >> push-ups, remember when you called me yesterday? >> one leg up right? >> i'll go like this. arm like that. >> all right. well this gets beyond my capabilities now. but this guy -- look at this. the guy is incredible and you can meet him tomorrow morning, this is at nats park, walk at 9:30 and we're going to be down there at 8:00 and all sorts of vendors and food and fun. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> you know, this is -- he's from iceland and the temperatures in the upper 30s feel pretty good this horn. >> feels good. is it going to rain tomorrow? >> no, tomorrow looks fantastic, probably in the low 40s in the morning and low 60s. >> it's not going to rain apples tomorrow? >> if you haven't seen the apple thing we're just throwing them around all over. that's a pretty cool video. >> not going to have any rain. >> no, no, apples good food, exercise and keep yourself in

6:22am
welcome back. 6:21. howard here with your weather first on this pretty but chilly friday morning and a great day ahead. and even better weekend. here's our day planner. and it is gorgeous outside now. clear skies behind the capitol dome. still a little pink on the horizon. 55 by noon and wind northwest at about 10 and by 3:00 high rite about 60 degrees. in our buddy check profile we met mercedes watson and she said being a cancer survivor can be transformative. another survivor maimah karmo has written a book about the experience, it's called "fearless." maimah is also president and ceo of the tiger lily foundation and welcome. fearless that says without fear but that's certainly not what you mean by the title. what does it mean? >> moving through life despite your fears. when i got breast cancer i was so terrified. its 32 years old and i i have a 3-year-old daughter who you met. and i was terrified. the whole time going through
6:23am
treatment i was afraid of dying. what i learned was that no matter how afraid you are you have to move through your fears and overcome them and it's about the -- what you do with your time. and so i found through beginning tigers lily and just expanding many i life that i realized looking back now i wasn't really afraid at all. i was afraid of not making a difference in my lifetime. >> you have made a difference, you mentioned tiger lily and you're the ceo and founder, this is you going through that. one of the things the doctor told you is that you were too young to have breast cancer and that delayed your diagnosis. and tiger lily, you were there before, during and after for younger women who were diagnosed with breast cancer. why was that so important for you to make a difference for them? >> well, because for one i was misdiagnosed. the women under 40 tend to have more aggressive breast cancers and higher mortality rates. if you're delayed in diagnosis you tend to get diagnosed later with more aggressive breast cancer. stage 3 or 4. i couldn't wait the get better. now, and the goal is to impact
6:24am
young women with message about you know being their own best advocates and knowing their bodies and educating doctors and physicians and the community as a whole and really giving these girls a place to go where they feel loved and cared for and get that support. you know we provide them with peer support, someone to hold their hand and help them and we pay for bills, treatment bills, mortgage, rent utilities, we send buddy bags. just to give them that loving you know, hand from here. from you have breast cancer until you're done and then after because you're done with treatment it doesn't end there. >> we have a few seconds, are you surprised at the support and encourage you received in our seven years? >> i'm floored. i feel honored. i say thank you to them for what they're doing. i promised god if i lived i'd give my life and service to him. we raised over $100,000 at the powerball and it's an amazing
6:25am
to serve people through this whole situation. >> maimah karmo. young survivor. "fearless." that's the name of the book. it's in stores now and she'll have book signings, some other things. we'll have on our website for you to know ability. good to have you here. >> thank you andrea. thank you. the president is going to address the nation for the first time after being elected of course he'll be talking about the economy and that fiscal cliff. facing a tough core decision when we return, we have a full report from capitol hill on that cliff. monika? >> on the northbound side of 395 the brake lights begin at duke street and continue to seminary road and the pace improves to 14th street bridge and all lanes are open. i'll be back with more traffic coming up at 6:30. you're watching 9news now. we'll be right back.

6:30am
beginning of the week. here's a look at the day planner and here we're looking at tysons corner from our michael & son weather camera there where temperatures this morning in town are down to 39 under clear skies and we'll see sunshine all day. 55. until 4:59 when the sunsets so 5:00 we've got the nice player and 57 degrees. storm system off of massachusetts pulling away. so that's why we're seeing improving weather conditions and before you go i want to show you the temperatures that down to 30 in culpeper right now. warm spot 43 in annapolis. monika samtani, tgif. oh absolutely. tgif. although we have one incident i want to shell you about -- term you about on 95 in virginia. but here on the beltway north of town we are actually still looking really good leaving the 95 interchange from college park and into silver spring. no green -- no yellow yet leaving the college park area as you head into silver spring and bethesda. in fact let's go there live right now at new hampshire and as you can see traffic is
6:31am
moving at a good pace. both loops of the beltway here. actually this is a good example of prince george's county as well. this time an accident on the northbound side of i-95 north of the occoquan river. the accident's in the left lane with some debris there as well. so be aware of that through the woodbridge area from the west you're okay on the dulles toll road out of sterling. 66. you've got a bit of slow traffic out of manassas into centreville but after that you're okay into fairfax and the beltway. and a live look one more time outside in virginia. northbound 395 still looks good here at the 14th street bridge. and i'll be back with more at 6:43. back to you guys. in about 29 minutes our friends at "cbs this morning" will start their day. >> gayle, what's going on? >> i know. i like that song. and andrea it's really about 28 minutes we'll be ready for you. hello you two. >> good morning. >> nice to see you guys. former secretary of state condoleeza rice will be here in studio 57. plus a special note to self --
6:32am
what an iraq veteran would say to his younger self on the eve of war. we know what president lincoln looked like but i bet until now you may not have known what he sounded like. those stories and more when we see you at 7:00. daniel day-lewis you guys is knockout in this movie "lincoln" that's coming out. >> mike is excited about seeing it on the first day. i'm going to let the clouds die down. >> it will be there, see you guys. >> 27 minutes. president barack obama is expected to urge congress to work with him to avoid the fiscal cliff. and plunge our economy back into a recession. >> the country's unemployment rate could be 9% within a year a they don't do something. ko im is live from capitol hill with more. sounds like a doomsday story ko. >> reporter: we hope not andrea and mike. the president today not expected to give specific debails but we're starting to
6:33am
see the negative effects we could get if we start approaching this so-called fiscal cliff. nationwide, families could see a tax increase of $2,000 to $3,000. officials in virginia are starting to brace themselves already. republican governor bob mcdonnell sent a memo to department heads. the fairfax county school board last night passed a resolution urging congress to end the cliff. they're worried $6 million for 36,000 kids learning english could get lost. so we're talking about impacts that could be very severe and significant. we've already seen trouble for virginia's finances over the last four years. so more of this trickle-down effect? you could see shorter hours at the national zoo and you could have to wait longer if you're looking to get a passport renewed. so the message from the president to lawmakers here is that they have to work together to avoid the fiscal cliff. but the question is, whether the president today will take a hard line like democrats want
6:34am
or start through compromise with republicans. a tough issue for a still very divided washington. back to you in the studio. >> thanks ko this morning. coward, that's what d.c. police are calling an 18-year- old who was arrested wednesday for robbing and hitting an 81- year-old woman inside her home in northwest d.c.. police say a masked robber broke in the rear window of a home on mckinley street and came across the owner and police say the robber smacked the woman before taking her computer. police arrested tyran mcelrath yesterday. the victim is now recovering after being checked out at hospital. the driver of a bus on the interstate that crashed in virginia last may was found guilty of killing four passengers. kim ewe chang faces up to 40 years in prison now after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter. he pleaded not guilty even though he admitted to police that he fell asleep while he was driving the sky express bus from greens bro to new york
6:35am
city. he is scheduled for sentencing in january. important commuter alert this morning for people traveling through parts of montgomery county. monika has been warning you about this. you may have noticed lots of traffic along river road near falls road yesterday morning. that's because the bbc is filming a movie starring judi dench in a church in? area. look out for traffic once again and watch out for monika still trying to get into the movie. >> still time. it is 6:36 and we want to turn it over to jessica doyle for a unique your money report. >> yeah, that's right. it is cold outside of course a lot of us did some complaining because of the temperatures and we are staying warm. we are dressing warm. and these are some products that the folks from snuggie sent over to us. this is the new holiday line that howard and i are wearing. and we want to direct your attention to our feet. this is a any product. these are called hot booties. you pop them in the microwave.

6:37am
that creates a current that runs into the clothes and this is pricey. this is the woman's long sleeved silver sun shirt and type. the combo set. $1,025. >> not a typo. $1,025. or $15. >> the cuddling is cheaper okay? >> i like her legs too. >> like taking a nap in the snuggie. what do you think mike? >> i love howard's penguins. really cute. >> that's very masculine. very macho. >> it is me. >> it is him. more than you know. coming up on 6:38. when we come back howard is also involved in the heart walk this weekend. we're talking about heart and he's going to interview a -- health and she's going to inter- - he's going to interview a very successful team captain. we'll be right back.
